Mr T Z Hadebe (DA) to ask the Minister of Environmental Affairs:
(1) (a) What is the final cost for construction of the Skukuza Safari Lodge,
(b) were tenders for this project issued in terms of prescribed procedure
and (c) were any tenders re-issued to preferred partners;
(2) (a) whether construction costs are reflected in the annual statements of the SA National Parks,
(b) what amount will be paid by her department
and (c) on what anticipated date will occupancy revenue break even with construction costs?
NW1194E











1061. THE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS REPLIES:
1
a) The final construction cost will only be determined when the construction work is completed. Two tenders were awarded in February 2017:
• Skukuza Safari Lodge main building tender: R 227 484 000 (VAT Incl.)
• Skukuza Safari Lodge bulk services: R 22 726 856 (VAT Incl.)
b) Yes. Tenders were issued in line with the Supply Chain Management Procedures and processes outlined by the National Treasury.
c) No. Tenders were only issued after the Bid Adjudication processes.
(2)
a) As and when costs are incurred, these costs will appear in the annual financial statements as “capital projects in progress.”
b) The entire amount is funded through the Departments Infrastructure Development Programme.
c) Year one.

Is it possible to have R250 000 000 in occupancy revenue within one year (Not even talking profit?) :shock:

Is that why there is no money for upgrading the existing accommodations? -O-

Department pays for new projects. SP is meant to pay for maintenance of existing structures.

be called upon to foot the bill,...

sponge!!!
